Florida caterer sued for serving food laced with marijuana during a wedding – Latest US News Hub

The Food provider, Joycelyn Bryant of Joycelyn’s Southern Kitchen Inc., allowed the food she served at a wedding to contain harmful levels of cannabis.

A woman who attended a wedding in Florida is suing the event’s caterer, accusing it of serving guests food laced with “toxic” levels of marijuana.

According to a lawsuit filed Monday, Virginia Ann Taylor-Svoboda said she suffered “serious and permanent injuries” after Joycelyn Bryant of Joycelyn’s Southern Kitchen Inc. allegedly allowed food to be infused with harmful levels of cannabis.

In the lawsuit, Taylor-Svoboda argued that she had no idea that the wedding meal contained marijuana, causing her to suffer “cannabis intoxication.” She accused Bryant of negligence and in the lawsuit she is seeking more than $30,000 in damages.

“(Bryant) knew, or should have known, that allowing food served by (Joycelyn’s Southern Kitchen) laced with marijuana was reasonably likely to cause injury and harm to wedding guests,” Taylor-Svoboda’s lawsuit claimed.

On February 19, a wedding reception descended into chaos after Seminole County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived to find guests complaining of feeling “high.”

One guest told officers he felt like he “had drugs inside of him” after consuming only food and wine.

When authorities showed up, first responders were already treating several sick guests and some attendants were sent to a hospital.

A female guest reportedly told officials that the food was laced with marijuana. Another guest said he was feeling “sick and high,” according to the report, and that he wanted to press charges against the people responsible for possibly mixing his food.

Samples of the food served at the event were sent to a laboratory for analysis. Laboratory results revealed that the lasagna and bread tested positive for THC, an active ingredient in marijuana.

Bryant was charged with violating Florida’s Tampering Law, supplying marijuana and tortious negligence in April, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office report. The girlfriend also faces various charges, including food tampering and marijuana delivery.
